Russian Language Day

The 6th of June in Russia is the day of the Russian language. Let’s celebrate it by learning something new! For example:

to congratulate on something, you can use the following pattern:

с + occasion in instrumental case.

C днём русского языка! (C + “day” in instrumental case + related words in genitive, as it corresponds to the of phrase) – “with (=on) day of Russian language!”

Why 6th of June? Because it is Alexander Pushkin’s birthday. He wrote beautiful poems among everything else). For Russian he is just as important as is Shakespeare for English).

С днём рождения! – “with (=on) day of birthday!”

русский

Haven’t learned Pushkin’s poems by heart yet? No problem, can be fixed by a little cheating.
